Syrian Foreign Minister Says Damascus Remains Committed to Dialogue

Syrian Foreign Minister, Walid al-Muallem

Damascus, February 17 (RHC)-- Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem has reaffirmed his country’s commitment to inter-Syrian dialogue without preconditions. 

In a meeting with UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura in Damascus on Tuesday, al-Muallem said that his government will continue to protect citizens and distribute humanitarian aid, chiefly in the zones controlled by terrorist groups. 

The meeting comes days after diplomats from a group of countries in Munich, including the U.S., Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran, agreed to seek a temporary "cessation of hostilities" in Syria within a week.

The International Syria Support Group (ISSG) also agreed to "accelerate and expand" deliveries of humanitarian aid to various besieged Syrian towns.
